Re: Zeeko Spitfire Hydrofoil

Maybe you should get the base plate with collar. You would have to shim it to match the angle of the spitfire base, but it would be stronger... or try to land more gently.

Re: Ketos wave xl vs Moses Onda 633?

That is great if they are able to fit it on normal fuselage. Good luck with it.

Re: Ketos wave xl vs Moses Onda 633?

ketos 1200 can be used on kite fuselage How? The pictures in their website show 4 holes in a parallelogram shape instead of two or three in a row, and sold with a windsurf fuselage... There always seems to be some extra info about ketos beyond what is on their website or the French forum... Inside ...

Re: Ketos wave xxl vs Moses Onda 633?

Probably only developers and teamriders for ketos and moses have tried both. Some French forum posters seem to feel moses is somewhat stealing the ideas of ketos's bigger wings. I have no idea about that. Ketos is not a big shop, so if I had to guess, I would guess there are no more than a dozen or ...

Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

One piece wing/fuse seems limited for normal people. It’s nice to have 3 wings mast fuse stab and hardware in a small bag. I can’t imagine wanting to lug 2-3 one-piece foils in a car, especially with other riders and gear along too. On a plane? Forget about it. 51 mph? That kind of speed is like the...

...zeeko and some others are smart enough to make the wing:fuse joint flat. But you can’t have everything!

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

Evan, sounds like you had a little excess grease. Fuse failing structurally would probably take a long time, since loading is spread across tenon/pocket in fuse. Might lose some rigidity if screw holes got wallowed out. crevice corrosion on the SS bolts would be a worry too... But bumpy oxide zits o...

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

1. Proper Al alloy, hard anodized. 2. Paint on top of anodization. 3. Lay up outer layer with s-glass or basalt plus barrier coat of epoxy on mast tenon that goes into fuselage. Same for wing attachment areas. 4. Good barrier coat of epoxy and/or paint on wings too. 5. Carbon fuselage not such a bad...

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

Another question comes to mind: are the wings, including the screw holes, fully sealed? This sounds like there is exposed carbon involved, not just steel versus aluminum, to see damage in hours. Maybe the attachment areas need a barrier coat of epoxy, especially in the holes? Just a thought, I don’t...

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

Sounds like OP would be just the expert to pick the right coating to apply as a barrier, find an anodizing shop, fit an anode, or whatever....
But Moses should make sure their anodizing is thorough, hard, and follow zeeko example by following it with PAINT also!
